    Wow.

    What a dull dunk contest. Not interested by 3 of the 4.

    The only one I really want to see is Griffin.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    This is terrible. Ibaka? Jennings? McGee isn't even the best dunker on his team.

    Yawn. Way to go, NBA.

    I really hope Josh makes it and that's not the final count. We'll never see the "White Man Can Dunk" video!

    3 big men and an undersized paper thin point guard. How usual. Man do i miss some great wings in this. The guys who really are the best dunkers, not just 'athletic freak for his size' type of people. Blake is great, but get a Wade or someone else in. Untill then, this is dull.

    Guess I'm in the minority but that line-up isn't so bad. Jennings has a lot of style and McGee has freakishly long arms that might make for some cool dunks. Haven't seen a lot of flash from Ibaka but Griffin will obviously be awesome.

    We need better than solid. No JJ Redicks, Andray Blatche, Mike Dunleavy type guys to have big roles on our team.

    Blake Griffen will win.


    I really doubt Brandon Jennings will do it

    A kid in a toilet makes a lot more sense than Josh outside of the dunk contest.

    Can Brandon Jennings even dunk?

    At that height, I doubt he can do anything jaw dropping.

    I guess they want to find another shorter player to replace Nate Robinson.

    Other than Blake Griffin, these aren't good selections.

    Is it possible to have less than no interest in it?

There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    I once looked forward to the dunk contest. Now, nearly the only entertainment value in it is the commentary from whoever happens to announce it, and that has deteriorated recently to a level that is difficult to listen to. IIRC, even Charles, Reggie, and Kenny were complaining about how boring it has become, and their own performances suffered for it in my opinion.

    I will probably watch the actual All Star game, but not much chance of watching anything else related to it.

    Seriously? Paul george made a video of him dunking over a 7'2 GIANT! This is such crap. I would like to see the top 10 count. The amount of dunk mcbob has had on the top dunks of the night vs these guys. This is laughable.

    I would love to see Josh in the contest too but anyone saying these aren't good selections needs to take off the blue and gold blinders and check out some of McGee and Ibaka's highlights (Jennings shouldn't be in it). Both of those dudes are freakishly athletic, just like Griffin. If you're excited about Blake Griffin, then you should have no reason to not be excited about Ibaka and McGee because they're all 3 the same type of dunkers, raw power and athleticism.

    HORRIBLE!

    Three big men and one below 6ft point guard.

    There's a difference between in-game dunking and doing creative dunks as part of a contest.


    Paul George, Wilson Chandler, Bill Walker, Rudy Gay, Chase Budinger, Jeff Green would've been much better options.

    Remember those days with Desmond Mason, Vince Carter and Jason Richardson in the dunk contest? Now we have to settle for this crap. The All-Star weekend is going downhill real fast.

    And if they had to include a point guard, John Wall and Derrick Rose are way better dunkers than Brandon Jennings.

    This means Josh has to release this video today or tomorrow before TNT's broadcast, when they announce, so he can try to get some airtime and support. Especially because I don't expect Brandon Jennings to make it back by All-Star break; this stuff happens every year. Maybe NBA brass will be listening to suggestions this year, with the impending lockout on the horizon.

    Besides Paul and Josh, I'd like to see DeMar DeRozan come back. He really has some sick hops. If they didn't strictly judge on dunks in NBA games during the season, I've heard Terrico White can dunk pretty well. Also in that video are John Wall, Wes Johnson and Paul George, as well as a bunch of others missing dunks.

    In my opinion, I'd have all these guys duke it out, but I guess we'll see some of them in the Rookie Challenge.

    Imagine the crowd response when the McRoberts and Rush come out in their white men can't jump get-up. The place would go nuts.

    I think the league doesn't want to play the White men can't jump card. Haha... ok not being racist, but its just the ignorant way people look at being PC. Stupid. There is no reason McGee should be in a dunk contest over McRoberts. Ibaka has got some crazy athleticism, so he might be a sleeper, but I would rather see Westbrook. McGee is a big guy that dunks a lot, but he doesn't have the versatility in dunking that will work for this event. He is a long, laborous dunker. Josh is a high flying, smooth dunker. Actually both he and George are VERY smooth dunkers. Those are the types that win this thing.

    I'm just surprised that the league spurned a player who went above and beyond in his effort to be in the contest. They usually are pulling teeth for half the guys they choose.
